Juniper Wins Bid with Allied Wireless Communications

Allied Wireless Communications Corporation (AWCC) selected Juniper Networks to build a high-performance mobile infrastructure to deliver an enhanced, secure user experience for mobile applications.

As part of the network upgrade, AWCC will deploy a combination of mobile network edge services, including Juniper's MX 3D Series Universal Edge Routers to offload traffic directly to the Internet, lowering network operating costs and latencies. In addition to the MX Series, AWCC will deliver carrier Ethernet transport with the EX Series Ethernet Switches, and multiservice transport services with the M Series Multiservice Edge Routers, along with SRX Series Services Gateways for integrated security. The complete solution is based on Junos OS.

AWCC was formed in connection with Atlantic Tele-Network's agreement to purchase wireless properties, licenses and network assets from Verizon Wireless. The sale of assets to ATN is expected to close in the second quarter of 2010.
